LeBron James raps over Jay-Z track

At least Miami Heat forward LeBron James has a career to fall back on if the NBA stuff goes pear-shaped over the next few years. Who knew he could rap this well?

The 29-year-old raps a verse on the record “Kingdom”, a remix of Jay-Z’s “F**kwithmeyouknowIgotit,”, along with his childhood friend Sian Cotton. The outcome? Well, surprisingly good actually. Perhaps Jay-Z should have asked the basketball icon to rap a verse on Magna Carta Holy Grail.

The four-time NBA Most Valuable Player even changes some of the lyrics to suit his own career, rapping: “Say what you want about the king. Got money, got cribs, got whips, and oh yeaaa (bleeped) got 2 rings (2 rings, 2 rings)”.

LeBron reportedly recorded the remix in Ohio last summer, according to TMZ, who posted the video of the former Cleveland Cavaliers star on the mic.

“We were working out together and LeBron said ‘let’s get in the booth,” his good pal Cotton told TMZ. “I said ‘I’m going tonight’, so he came to the studio.”

What do you think: he is good enough to become a full-time rapper? Or should he stick to the day job of being a multi-millionaire NBA star? Tough choice, eh?
